The Covid-19 vaccine was obtained by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, the Vice President and Ruler of Dubai.
On Tuesday, November 3, he made this known via his Twitter account.
He thanked all of those working to create a coronavirus vaccine.
We wish everyone safety and great health, and we are proud of our teams who have worked tirelessly to make the vaccine available in the UAE, “he said,” when obtaining the Covid-19 vaccine today.
“In the UAE, the future is always going to be better.”
The Prime Minister was the new senior UAE figure to receive the Sinopharm vaccine from China.
A Phase-3 trial involving 31,000 volunteers in the Emirates, Bahrain and Jordan was hosted by the nation.
Since then, the vaccine has been administered to frontline medical personnel, senior officials and some Cabinet members after obtaining restricted usage approval from the UAE Government in September.
